DSC0438542 years ago today my Father put this lovely lady in my arms, to be my best friend and stalwart partner in life.  I thank him for this precious gift, second only to Christ himself.  What a blessing she has been every day for 42 swiftly passing years!

So, I am leaving my study now to go home, pick her up and go out together to a nice restaurant for dinner.

Back tomorrow!

    Hi Bud,

    How is this for a name out of the past?! It has been a long time since we have been in touch. i am still mentoring the athletes at Stanford (year 43), and loving it more than ever even though I will be hitting the big 70 this coming July. I did not know that Linda and I shared the same wedding anniversary as you, just 5 years later than you two were married. You both look wonderful. I just happened to see you on Facebook, a site I seldom visit. I would love to re-establish our relationship. My contact information is:

    Blessings on you, my brother!

    My anniversary is today. We have been married 14 years. I look forward to my 42nd.

    Though we have never met, I appreciate you and your ministry.
